Story Behind the Art: 'My name is Neri and I love to design and craft beautiful handmade jewelry made from stones, pearls, and shells native to the Philippines Islands. In 2002, I started a small business with my family in the small provincial town of Minglanilla, Cebu selling whatever we could find in the local market. Over time, we were able to open weekend shops in several Cebu City malls to sell our most popular designs. The work and travel is not easy, but it is rewarding. Most importantly, I am grateful and feel pride for being able to generate work and income for the people back home so that they can have a better life.'

This is a stunning necklace. I bought it for my wife to wear for a wedding we have to attend this Spring, but she can't wait and now wears it all the time! The necklace is durable and seems to be very well made.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good quality, well made
This necklace & matching bracelet are definite "WOW Factors", however, upon closer inspection, the pieces are all held together by wire, which is very visible, (especially on the under side.)
I am a very "symmetrical" person, and it bothers me that the necklace is off-center just a tad bit. It is NOT adjustable, and is too long for a choker and just an odd length for me. It is a heavy piece, as well. Also, while it says, "...Jade & Mother of Pearl", the only MOP I can see is the fastener, (which most people won't see.)
Having said all that, I do love the fact that it is so different from anything I've seen before, so I am keeping it and will wear it eventually. The stones themselves are very beautiful. I just wish they could have put it together with something a little less visible.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes, very much so
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Stones are good; wires holding together could be less obvious.
After looking at the reviews, I was super excited about receiving this necklace. I had an outfit picked out and was planning to wear it for a specific event. I was very disappointed when it arrived. Four out of the five large jade pieces had been cracked/broken and glued back together and all of the stones were polished, rather than the slightly jagged, natural look depicted in the photo. The polished, clean edges of the pieces made the necklace look cheap. However, I really wanted the necklace so I gave it another shot. The fantastic overstock employee said there hadn't been any other complaints about the necklace, so I was hopeful that it was just a fluke. The 2nd one arrived, and though not as many of the jade pieces were cracked/broken (3 this time) and glued back together, there were, nonetheless, cracked/broken and glued back together pieces! Grrrr I really really want this necklace just as it is shown in the photo and not glued back together with polished jade pieces! I'm going to sleep on this before I decide whether I'm going to try a third time...super disappointed :(. The only redeeming part of this purchase was how the overstock staff member made going through the return process less disappointing. Thanks for validating my feelings of disappointment!
This necklace matches perfectly with a cashmere sweater for which I had great difficulty finding appropriate jewelry. It is a showpiece and I will be hunting for clothing to wear with it instead of the usual other way around!
It is significant that the artisan is in the Philippines where I lived for a short period of time and I will seek more of her creations.

Hello leigha46. Thank you for your interest in the Chunky Jade and Mother of Pearl Link Necklace (Philippines). I couldn't find any earrings that would match this necklace. But we do get new stock in every week, so maybe you will find something soon. I hope this answer helps you, thanks for shopping with us.

I, too, bought this gorgeous necklace. I haven't yet worn it, but I have several pieces of light colored jade earrings with which I plan to wear it.vlboldtown on May 27, 2013
